New games of November 2020 that are worth playing

Published

on

Autumn is traditionally not stingy with game premieres. 2020 is especially hot with the release of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S. There are a lot of great game projects coming out in November that you should definitely try. Here they are!

Assassin’s creed valhalla

  • Release date: November 10
  • Platforms: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, Windows

The twelfth game from Canadians from Ubisoft Montreal, but now about the Vikings and the conquest of England. This time, a strategic element has been added to the traditional mechanics and juicy combat: gamers will build and improve buildings, upgrade their settlements and increase their influence in the world of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

The release will take place on all platforms, including Xbox Series X / S and PS5 on November 10. Experts have already appreciated the excellent optimization of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and tested the game on the Xbox Series X.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales

  • Release date: 12/19 November
  • Platform: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4

One of the launch exclusives for PlayStation 5 and the sequel to Insomniac Games’ original Spider-Man, released exclusively for PlayStation 4.

The game is already receiving high marks from critics, having absorbed all the best for which gamers fell in love with the original game: an open world, a well-developed combat system, characters and storyline.

What’s funny is that Sony previously positioned the game as an exclusive for the PlayStation 5, but later assured that the game would also appear on the PlayStation 4. Can the game be called a full-fledged next-gen project after that? Unless, in terms of loading. The developers note that the game will load in two seconds on the PlayStation 5.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

  • Release Date: November 13
  • Platforms: Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S

The seventeenth installment of the franchise and simply one of the most popular games on earth. The plot takes players back to the 80s of the last century, and the game is being developed by Raven Software (single-player company) and Treyarch (multiplayer).

Good news for those who purchase Call of Duty to complete the story (or vice versa, for multiplayer battles). Gamers will be given the opportunity to install the game in parts – only the plot or only the multiplayer part. And those gamers who decide to upgrade their graphics card to GeForce RTX 3080 or RTX 3090 can get the game for free.

DiRT 5

  • Release date: November 6
  • Platforms: Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X

The franchise has its roots in 1998, when the first installment of the Colin McRae Rally came out. The series will later be renamed DiRT, and the focus will be shifted from rally racing to more arcade competitions in different disciplines. It is already known that rallycross, driving a buggy, trucks and ice racing will be added to DiRT 5. The new “feature” of the project will be the dynamic change of weather, which will directly affect the handling. But you shouldn’t count on a realistic model of the car’s behavior. Still, DiRT is about arcade racing.

The optimization is fine. The game has already been tested on the Xbox Series X, and DiRT 5 plays great at 4K resolution and 60 FPS. The project was released on platforms of the current generation on November 6, and for PS5 and Xbox Series X the game will appear on November 10 and 12, respectively.

Godfall

  • Release date: November 12
  • Platforms: Windows, PlayStation 5

New RPG in a fantastic setting with slasher elements. Despite the fact that the game is made on the Unreal Engine 4, perhaps this is the only project that somehow claims to be a next-gen picture.

It looks beautiful, but whether it will be interesting to play all this is not yet clear. How complete the worked out world will be, whether you want to explore it, whether the balance will be well maintained – this remains open to question. But even with skepticism aside, GodFall can make a pretty good slasher.

The system requirements are already known, but the optimization is not so good. The developers wrote that at least 12 GB of video memory is required for a comfortable game. Considering that the GeForce RTX 3080 only has 10 GB of video memory on board, gamers are worried that it will be difficult for the video chip to provide a stable FPS at 4K resolution.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered

  • Release date: November 6
  • Platforms: Windows, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, Ninetndo Switch

Released in 2010, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit received warm reviews from critics and gamers. As the spiritual successor of the first parts of Hot Pursuit, the new game has absorbed all the best things for which these parts were loved – an open world, thoughtful pursuits with policemen and the ability to take on the role of guardians of the opposition yourself. Ten years after the release, EA decided to do the same, selling the same game with the “Remaster” prefix.

In general, it turned out to be the same game, which does not make it worse. Those who for some reason did not get acquainted with the game in 2010 and love racing – you are welcome.

For the rest of us, the “re-release” of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit may be a disappointment. Because nothing new EA has brought to the new project, even in terms of graphical improvements.

Demon’S Souls Remake

  • Release date: 12/19 November
  • Platforms: PlayStation 5

The only major PlayStation 5 exclusive to be system-seller for the console. And in this case From Software redesigned the game completely, at least in technical terms. Demon’s Souls kicked off a new trend in games where high difficulty and an endless sense of danger are paramount. How it all looks and plays can be seen in one of the latest videos.

Froms Software has promised not to deviate from the canons, so the remake of Demon’s Souls shouldn’t get any easier. Let’s hope!

XIII

  • Release date: November 10
  • Platforms: Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Projects stylized as Cell-shading graphics are very rare. A feature of this graphic style is the use of bright and colorful textures on 3D models, due to which the graphics of the game begin to resemble animation. XIII was a comic-style first-person shooter that gave the game its recognizable signature. The original game was released in 2003, and after 17 years the developers decided to give the project a second life.

Visually, everything looks great too:

How well it will be possible to implement everything in terms of gameplay is another question. By 2003, the concepts of game design and gameplay were different from current trends, and if the developers manage to take this fact into account, it can turn out to be a good first-person spy game.

Destiny 2: Beyond Light

  • Release date: November 10
  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Windows

The attempt to go online has borne fruit. Bungie managed to create an MMO shooter that can keep players not with endless farming, but with high-quality gameplay, unique lore and a good storyline. Three years after the release of the original Destiny 2, the developers are finishing up another major expansion.

The “gentleman’s set” is pretty standard: new perks, locations, storyline, weapons with armor, new bosses and stuff like that.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

  • Release date: November 27
  • Platform: Windows

Another successful example in the MMO genre, where the developers did not abandon the game, but only made it better. Shadowlands is the ninth expansion. Recall that the original WoW was released in 2004.

The addon’s bonuses include five new play zones, leveling up from level 50 to 60, a new covenant system that gives access to unique missions and game bonuses, a separate starting area for new players, an improved character customization system, new mounts, game pets, spells, etc. everything-everything-everything else. The set is also quite classic, but the experience of Battle For Azeroth has shown the attention to detail with which developers take on new add-ons.

The character pumping from level 10 to 50 deserves special attention. Now gamers can choose the plot of their favorite add-on and stay there until they reach level 50, although previously the system forced players to leave their favorite locations due to the fact that their level exceeded the level of the add-on. Bravo Blizzard, World of Warcraft is in good hands so far.
